to sit and talk to you about the details, no i'm not. >> laura: the obama administration is at it again. changing its story over what it knew about security lapses in libya. we will hear from a congressman investigating what went wrong. >> now, i believe that life begins at conception. the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion. >> i accept my church's position on abortion. i just refuse to impose that on others. >> laura: at last night's debate push the democrats war on women claim back to the forefront of the campaign? we will hear from both sides. caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. hi, everyone, i'm laura ingraham in for bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the truth about the debate. that's the subject of this evening's talking points memo. joe biden showed up last night in kentucky with twin goals, one, to blunt mitt romney's post debate momentum and two to give a boost to a democratic base that had become quite anxious after the president's terrible denver debate performance. i will give biden this much. l
: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. will libya become a major scandal fort obama administration? that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. today a house committee held hearings on the giant screwup that occurred immediately after our ambassador to libya, christopher stevens, was asassed on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton
a gaffe omatic to being a laugh omatic. >> the obama administration had the exact same position. let's recall that they disavowed their own now we have them in place because of congress, they say the military option is on the table but not being viewed as credible so they stopped viewing nuclear weapons. >> how do you do it so quickly? you both saw benjamin netanyahu. >> we can debate the time line. whether it's that short of time or longer. i agree it's probably longer. number two, thank heavens we had these sanctions in place. it's in spite of their opposition. >> oh, god. >> laura: this was odd. even learnt guys -- elevate left of center. found the constant smirking, smiling and constant interrupting off-putting. in your face debate strategy didn't wear so well and perhaps distracted from some of the stronger substantive points. speaking of substance, joe biden told a number of big whoppers last night but i'm going to stick to three of them. first, on why there wasn't adequate security in place on 9/11 in benghazi. >> we weren't told they wanted more security there we did not know
on september 11. many believe the obama administration initially covered up what was a terrorist attack by saying the violence might have been generated by an anti-muslim tape. we now know ambassador stevens, foreign service officer sean smith, former navy seal and two others were killed in a planned terrorist attack. the situation has the potential, potential to damage president obama's reelection chances. let's take it step by step in a methodical way. on september 12, president obama reacted to the murder of ambassador stevens by first discussing the anti-muslim tape. >> we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, but there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. none. >> bill: the next day, secretary of state hillary clinton made a public statement again emphasizing the tape. >> the united states government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. we absolutely reject its content and message. america's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. >> bill: notice no mention of the possibility
been hitting the obama administration for china policies, specifically arguing that the president of the united states has not done enough to protect the u.s. economy from china's alleged currency manipulation and unfair trade practices. at each event today, mitt romney and paul ryan have been trying to thump mr. obama for his absence of leadership on this, they say. here is a sampling from earlier today at mr. romney's convenient in portsmouth, ohio. >> over the past several years, the president failed to call china a currency manipulator. he had the occasion on friday to come out with that official designation. you know what they said? we're not going to make any determination until after the election. let me tell you, on day one of my administration, i will label china a currency manipulator. >> here in ohio, that is a particularly potent attack because the manufacturing base had taken such a hit over the past few years, both in the obama economy and before. paul ryan was campaigning today in youngtown, ohio. he made the point that mr. obama has had a number of chances to take
to trade. >> reporter: the obama administration asserted that doing such tough crackdowns on china could lead to a trade war of the fastest growing economy in the word and they said that mr. romney hasn't been entirely pure when it comes to doing business with china himself in his private life and private business experience. the romney campaign says it is all excuses and time for the u.s. government to stop putting up with china's trade practices and currency manipulation and romney says he would take steps on day one to correct that practice. >> the debate coming up quickly. right off the top we showed viewers governor romney in ohio from early talking about success and alluding to how much fun he had on the first presidential debate. now, a couple of days away from the next one and i understand he will be off the trail preparing for that. what else? >> reporter: that's right. talking about the debate last week has been one of his biggest rallying cries in front of big crowds ever since it happened. seems to have been a big huge momentum boost for mr. romney. he did debate prep with hi
was the critique leveled by paul ryan of the foreign policy of the obama administration was essentially stylistic. that the foreign policy rhetoric is insufficiently tough, that there isn't this performance of american toughness that is insufficient to paul ryan and here's a mon taj of how that sounded. >> we wouldn't refer to bashar assad as a reformer. we're not projecting weakness abroad. we shouldn't have called bashar assad a reformer. this invites weakness. >> the bashar assad a reformer. that was his only line on syria policy. largely was rhetoric kalt. now when you talk the three hot spots in the world, not necessarily in the entire world, which is iran, the war in afghanistan and syria, there wasn't as far as i can tell any policy disagreement that they were leveling. take a look. >> these are the most crippling sanctions in the history of sanctions. >> thank hechks we had these sanctions in place. >> what more would they do other than put american boots to the ground. >> nobody is proposing to send troops to syria. >> we are leaving in 2014, period. >> we agree with the administration o
for a moment now. last night vice president biden said the obama administration was not told of requests for more security in the run-up to the terror attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republicans pounced on that claim pointing to testimony the day before from the state department officials that said there had been earlier requests for more security staffing. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge is live in washington with more on all this. the catherine. >> reporter: good morning. on libya the vice president blamed the intelligence community for bad assessments that informed the administration public and controversyal statements about the attack and suggested the white house was unaware for more requests on the ground in libya. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security again. by the way, at the time we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community towed us. that they knew. that was the assessment. and as the intelligence community changed their view, we made it clear they changed their view. that's
clear. >> bil spin aside, there is no question that the obama administration screwed this up. there is no question. they screwed it up. we simply did not have enough security in libya totehe thg tiinrw , there a conscious effort to cover up that poor security situation? the answer to that question could decide the election. and that's a memo. for the top story, let's bring f n seg ast te rph peters. i know you're angry about this. and i know you're very critical about this. but let's take it step by step as we did in the talking points memo. that was a fair talking points memo. correc to eththccd,eec rig d ee w that, that was a fair memo? >> yeah. i think it was beyond fair. you actually gave the white house the benefit of the doubt. >> bill: i think that's the right thing to do fro my perspective here because there is no smoking gun right n m b m c frd b te t at fna at is there is a division now between hillary clinton and barak obama. if you want to personalize it. that was a pretty interesti conference call yesterday. the state department called it, fnhiutouall the pressx
what it's telling the obama administration. let's listen. >> as they learn more facts about exa what happened, they changed their assessment. that's why there is also an investigation headed by tom pickering, a leading diplomat from the reagan years, who is doing investigation as to whether or not there are any lapses, what the lapses were, so they will never happen again. >> and they wanted more security there. >> well, we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. >> we hear the pronoun he's using, it is we. many of the -- many agree the bo bone of contention is the we were not told the u.s. diplomats needed more security before the fatal attack on september 11th. romney didn't say which state department official that be with. he didn't say specifically which testimony. let's start with that. can you discern what romney was talking about when he said biden contradicted that sworn testimony? >> well, i would say number one that is probably a reference to eric nordstrom, who was the regional security officer, that means he works for the state
. that's identical to the obama administration position. >> eliot: and it may be happening. those are the covert efforts that may be running through iran saudi saudi arabia. >> they are. >> eliot: they don't want to publicize them. but jon, let's go to you. you have been in iraq. you heard what romney said we should be doing differently in iraq. how does it strike you. you had boots on the ground, tell us your reaction. >> i was shocked. he some how thinks he could have done differently in iraq. we were being bounded by the militia, supported by iran. we can build the hardware of democracy but it does not mean that we'll win the election. fringe elements of the militia last week killed troops after combat was supposedly over. there was no way they were going to agree to have american troops stay. he made some speech talking about how this president messed up and how iraq is in chaos. that's preposterous. was he going to lead guys like me out in the field out immunity? on afghanistan he sat there and where we have troops engaged in combat now. now he's saying yeah, i don't want to
that they're pounding the romney campaign on libya right now? the whole issue of the obama administration and libya as opposed to focusing in on issue number one, the economy? >> i think they're going to try and do both. i think the reason they're pounding at the libya issue is that they think there's an opening there. they found a chink in the armor. mitt romney right now is kind of tied with the president in the last poll we looked at on the leadership issue. they want to get an advantage. what they're trying to say and what joe biden said yesterday, if he didn't know, he should have known. the buck stops there. this is a question of who's in charge. what we did hear at the state department hearing is that there is an explanation for this from the state department which is they felt they wanted the libyans to take charge of their own security. and of course the president and the vice president are not involved in every security matter when it comes to embassies. but this being a political year, mitt romney is saying, you know what, by implication if i were president, i would have known
in this election. we can elect somebody who does not have a plan, will be an echo of the obama administration. or somebody who will continue to be an independent voice for arizona. i would appreciate your vote. >> thank you for your opening statements. let's fine tune things a little bit here. why you and not him? >> happy to have the opportunity. no, my life has been one that has been best exemplified by the infrastructure of opportunity that this nation has. i am a high-school dropout from an immigrant family. i have prospered because of this great infrastructure of opportunity in our nation. i have been able to serve my country as a physician, a police officer, as a professor, as a teacher. and doing all of those things has allowed me to appreciate how great this nation is. what i want to do is make sure we can preserve this infrastructure of opportunity so every kid can get that american dream. >> what you and not him? >> that is exactly it. that opportunity will not exist unless we get a hold of this $16 trillion debt. that is why we have to have somebody who has a record, who is willing
in light of how proabortion the obama administration has been and how he has come out for same sex marriage, clearly in opposition to catholic church teaching. and especially in relationship to this. now, what joe by deb is probably parsing here -- biden is parsing here is the only way you can get away with it is say we are not providing the contraceptives our insurance companies are. so it's a transference. it's still your money going to the insurance company and the insurance company is providing it it's a nice way to try to trick the system. i think people have of integrity know that if it's still your money essentially that's providing it doesn't matter if you are using a third party to do it. it's like saying i didn't buy those drugs. i gave the money to a kid who went out and bought the drugs. it's ridiculous. >> i haven't heard a lot about it on the campaign trail. maybe we will 24 days. the governor sticking around for this in 2008 the president said he would bridge the partisan divide. new polls say he is making us more divided. the surprising results next. >> and it turns out thos
of the failures, i believe, of the obama administration that eventually will come out. but here is what i am going to predict. we have seen a lot of smoke blowing. i think we are going to see whistle blowing. here is why. people in the intelligence community are insulted, they have been denigrated. they have been held in essence out to dry for this whole debacle. and i guarantee you some of these people who are highly professional who put their lives and their families' lives on the lines to do what they do are going to at some point going to start saying okay, we're going to get the truth out. it's going to start leaking. you will see stories within the next 10 days that will spill some beans. >> that's already happened in terms of acre nordstrom and andrew wood the two guys that were with -- they came forward because they wanted to talk about what he was going on on the ground in benghazi. we want to move to the debate and some of the style issues over substance what did you think about joe biden's affect his demeanor. >> was he affected? i think he clearly was. somewhere two thirds of the way i
. and the obama administration has requested from congress a new 770 billion-dollar fund that would be tied to concrete benchmarks for political and economic reform, and i again urge congress to move forward on this priority. but let me briefly just address the three parts of our strategy starting with security. the recent riots in lawlessness underscore the challenges of safeguarding public safety in free societies and reforming security. for decades those forces protected regimes. now their job is to protect citizens, especially against specially against the threats of violent extremism. for some time, al qaeda and the islamic maghreb and other terrorist groups have launched a track -- attacks and kidnappings from northern mali into neighboring countries. now with the chaos and ethnic conflict there, allowing these groups to carve out a larger safe haven they are seeking to extend their reach in their network in multiple directions. we are using every tool we can to help our partners fight extremism and meet their security challenges. we recently embedded officers with regional expertise
happened and why and why the obama administration's quote initial public assessments of the attack were subsequently proven inaccurate. >> patti ann: nato special forces are putting some of the top police officers through elite training. this sort of training mission is key to plans for the 2014 withdrawal but it comes after green on blue attacks which afghan security forces opened fired on nato trainers. lieutenant colonel north is streaming live from hellman province in afghanistan. >> nato commanders maintain that these green on blue attacks have failed to drive a wedge between the united states and our allies that those special forces that are being trained, we want to see for ourselves. >> these are afghan special police at the nato training center here in the province. the hand picked police officers sent here for advanced training to master skills necessary to protect the afghan people from the taliban. training here is conducted by nato special operators and experienced american law officers. this year, 600 graduates will return to their units in hand-to-hand combat, fire qualif
this administration. we don't know the answer to that. look, president bush, president obama, and a president romney would all say we will not allow iran to acquire the nuclear know how basically to produce weapons. biden was saying clearly, look, it's not as bad as it seems, they don't have a weapon to mount this on. >> one point ryan seemed to agree with that saying we have more time. >> it's not clear to me where the real difference is in the policy. >> yep. >> rhetoric is fine. one of the challenge for republicans right now post the bush era if you're saying that basically the democrats are soft on foreign policy, what is the difference between that and the projection of american power under the bush era where you invaded other countries and the like? is there some middle ground. if there is i don't know what that is. we're in the rhetorical stage after neo conservative sounding ticket -- >> and biden made -- >> being tougher is not a policy. >> biden made a virtue out of that for his base saying would you go to a war? would you start another war? and that is very resonate with democratic base a
